There is September 11 and then there are the days after, and finally the years. Falling Manis a magnificent, essential novel about the event that defines turn-of-the-century America. It begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and tracks the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few people. First there is Keith, walking out of the rubble into a life that he'd always imagined belonged to everyone but him. Then Lianne, his es-tranged wife, memory-haunted, trying to reconcile two versions of the same shadowy man. And their small son Justin, standing at the window, scanning the sky for more planes. These are lives choreographed by loss, grief and the enormous force of history. Brave and brilliant,Falling Mantraces the way the events of September 11 have reconfigured our emotional landscape, our memory and our perception of the world. It is cathartic, beautiful, heartbreaking.

Don DeLillo, American novelist, was born in New York City in 1936 and attended Fordham University. DeLillo's novels address 20th century themes such as the paranoia, alienation, and angst engendered by life in modern society. He is a master of language, wit, and the truths of man's search for meaning as he explores various subcultures such as football, rock music, and technology. His works include his first novel, Americana, Running Dog, and White Noise. His book Libra examines the minds of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. DeLillo also writes short stories and has written one play, The Engineer of Moonlight. Don DeLillo has received many honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1979, an American Academy Award in 1984, and the American Book Award in 1985.
